The report, released by PwC, is called ‘Talent Mobility 2020: The next generation of international assignments‘, and states that it is still difficult for employers to reach top talent, as 97% of CEOs stated, in a PwC global survey, that having the right talent is crucial for business growth.
Lucian Tarnowski, founder and CEO of BraveNewTalent, was there to witness this prestigious moment and speak about Talent Mobility and Social Recruitment. That’s him below with Cecilia Ronan, HR director of Citi Ireland and Mark Carter, HR Services partner at PwC.
In addition, the PwC’s report stated that, even though international assignments have increased by 25%, PwC’s research predicts that this will increase to 50% by 2020, meaning more business travel and shorter commuter assignments.
What does this mean for Gen Y? More international mobility means more opportunities to receive the right skills needed by employers in their home countries.
The report states that shorter international assignments will become so popular that it might become a requirement before an employee can move towards leadership opportunities or promotions.
Now that Talent Mobility is a current topic for businesses, Gen Y will still see great international opportunities and become the greatly sought after talent that employers need.
